A great learning tool
My son has ADHD and had been doing theraphy and medication but things were still very stressful aand tense at home and school. His self-estemm was very poor and we were in a cycle of yell/scream to try and get our point across(which wasn't working!!!) I read this book and instantly recognized myself and our family in many of the situations and saw how we were going around in a spiralling circle as a family which was spinning out of control. I wrote myself post-it notes around the house of tips, ideas and phrasings that were used in the book so that I have access to tools when I need them. By myself and husband changing some of our attitudes my son has started to change some of his. Some of the ideas are difficult to use with a child that has ADHD but if we can just bring the stress level down from a 10 to a 4 it seems to help. I would recommend reading this book even just for a reality check because sometimes you are too close to see what the yelling and screaming is doing. My sons self estemm has gone up just by us prasing him and chosing our words a little more carefully(still using the post-its for prompting) which in turn makes him more willing to try to be successful.Was this review helpful?
